Greenup County Judge Executive Robert Carpenter has lifted the local burning ban order in Greenup County.
Carpenter had signed an executive order on Oct. 1 banning burning fires for 30 days due to the recent fires in Greenup County.
Carpenter issued an executive order on Friday lifting the local burning ban, allowing citizens to burn from the hours of 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Dec. 15.
“We are only concerned with fires getting out of control across the county,” stated the order. “Local government has the responsibility to protect the public health, safety, welfare and to secure property and personal belongings susceptible to damage.”
